How To Paint Baseboards In A Carpeted Room

This QTT hails from last fall’s One Room Challenge, but it is so earth shattering that it really needs it’s own post.

Are you holding on to your hat? Ready?

The trick of how to paint your baseboards or door trim in a carpeted room –
use packing tape.
It has more tack than painter’s tape, but won’t leave residue behind, and won’t give you the dreaded bleed-through.
Press the packing tape right up to the edge of the trim, push down the carpet and packing tape with a spackle or putty knife, and go to town painting.

That’s it!! Easy peasy and no paint on your carpet!

I hope this rocked your world.

Happy Tuesday lovebugs.
